New ones are nearly 2000 chf per month is this reasonable? Most seem to be 12 month lease.
Yes, that would be about the going rate for a middle of the range three bedroom flat in what is a relatively cheap part of the country.

The most common type of lease here is for an initial period of 12 months, after which you can normally cancel by giving three months' notice. In some leases the notice period can only end at certain specific dates (typically the end of March, June and September). You can in theory get out of the lease outside of the stipulated dates if you can provide the letting agency with the names of three solvent people who are willing to take the flat over from you.
